How do you fit it all in?

There are soooo many things I'd like to cook or try to cook, but how do you find the time? I loved my time off this past holiday - it was so much fun to spend time puttering in the kitchen. Sometimes I think I'd like to make a career out of it, but, questions about being good enough in the first place aside, I'm afraid that doing it for a living would take all the fun out of it. Notice how I said I had fun "puttering". With a food business, there is no puttering, of that I am fairly certain.

We just had dinner at a local Italian restaurant. Their food is quite good, if not terribly creative. I'd love to see them take it up a few notches, but I know what they probably also know - it wouldn't go over as well around here as the basics they currently keep on their menu. Still, a few creative dishes thrown in here and there couldn't hurt, could it?

Tonight I tried their vodka sauce and it was quite good. That's on my list of things to learn how to make. I suppose I should add it to my list. But there are so many other things....where to find the time??? Sure, I CAN find the time, but then nothing else would get done. Couldn't I find some way to get paid to putter in the kitchen all day, trying new things????

Speaking of cooking, none of that went on in this house yesterday or today, but something will certainly be on the menu for tomorrow. Not sure what yet. I was thinking of some kind of pasta or pizza, but we had that tonight. Baking is also part of the plan - a wholegrain cranberry muffin that would combine Sweetnicks ARF/5-a-day challenge and my theme for Virtual Recipe Club this month.
